1 in 3 West Virginia Democratic primary voters choose felon over Obama
The Hill ^ | 05/08/12 10:06 PM ET | Josh Lederman

A felon incarcerated in Texas took one in three votes away from President Obama in West Virginia's Democratic presidential primary on Tuesday.

Keith Judd, who is serving time in a federal prison in Texarkana, Texas, for extortion, took 37 percent of the vote, with 50 percent of precincts reporting. Obama captured the remaining 63 percent.

By locking up more than 15 percent, Judd may be entitled to at least one delegate at the Democratic National Convention in September. …

This is funny, but you won’t hear about it on any of the MSM outlets. They will focus coverage of today’s elections on IN and the NC constitutional amendment.

While it’s encouraging, hilarious and well-deserved, I am wondering if BO is falling too soon before the election. If there’s much more of this type of humiliation, true desperation will set in and there’s no telling what he will do.

I would select Fidel Castro over Obama. At least he's (now) honest about what he is.

According to the White House Insider, the Dems are planning a fake assassination attempt to try to get the white guilt vote back. I'm not altogether sure the idiot 'moderates' in this country wouldn't fall for that.

Wow! This would appear to be extremely bad news for Obama in WV. Maybe even bad news for that lying SOB, Manchin. Maybe even bad news for Obama nationally!

According to the AP, Judd is now up to 41%. His margin has been increasing all night. He’s also won 9 counties.

The left is going to cry racism, much like they did in 2008 when Hillary defeated Obama there by 41 points, but in reality-even WV’s Dems must be angry that Obama has basically eviscerated the entire coal industry in favor of radical environmentalist nonsense.

I hope talk radio is all over this tomorrow.

Great night for conservatives, everybody!

Convicted Felon 41%
Not-Yet-Convicted Felon 58%

Seems even a whole bunch of Democrats can’t stomach the idea of voting for Obama again!

Don’t let the Media fool you, folks.
There is a WHOLE LOT of anger at Obama from the people the Dems and the media PLAYED FOR FOOLS in 2008!!

Yet, the majority of West Virginians voted for ECONOMIC SUICIDE in 2008. The UMW even endorsed Obama.

Did they think he was KIDDING about wrecking the coal industry?

Of course they thought he was kidding! Most people have created the delusion that politicians really wants what’s best for them. This is the first time they have seen one so in your face that he could give a crap about any of us.

Narcissistic sociopaths suck. America is realizing that they can come in a shiny suit and read a teleprompter well, doesn’t make them less dangerous than the loser in the trailer park of the same disorder.

The best weapon against your adversary is humor, mockery, and humiliation. Hope the bummer gets pummeled with this stuff in the days ahead.
